Navalny’s condition ‘continues to improve’: Berlin hospital

BERLIN, Sept 2, 2020 (BSS/AFP) – The condition of poisoned Russian
opposition figure Alexei Navalny is gradually improving but it is too
early to predict long-term effects, the Berlin hospital treating him
said Wednesday.

“The patient, whose symptoms were the result of cholinesterase
inhibition following a confirmed poisoning event, continues to
improve,” the Charite hospital said in a statement.

“The reason for this improvement is the gradual recovery of
cholinesterase activity,” it said.

He is being treated in an intensive care unit and remains on a ventilator.
